Are you or a friend not a Sponsor but would like to be? OR, maybe you are considering giving the gift of Sponsorship to a beloved friend? Below are a few Q & A’s about Monthly Giving…
Monthly giving is so vital to the Animal League’s efforts in helping us plan ahead and to do MORE for the animals in our care!
Q: What is Sponsorship?
A: Sponsorship is a donors personal commitment to making monthly donations to critical programs offered by North Shore Animal League America. The Animal League offers 2 life-saving monthly giving programs. Through our Sponsor Program, you can choose to support a special-needs dog Sponsor a Dog or a special-needs cat Sponsor a Cat or to sponsor all the orphaned and newborn puppies and kittens, and their mothers, in our nursery through our H.E.L.P Program.
Q: Why should I Sponsor a special-needs Animal?
A: Many animals that come to the Animal League have conditions and illnesses that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. These special-needs dogs and cats would most likely be euthanized elsewhere, but not at North Shore Animal League America. As a 70 year NO-KILL shelter, we make a commitment to all animals which includes our innocent and deserving Sponsor Program pets. These pets would be forgotten elsewhere; become a part of their lives and let’s support them – we can make a difference together!
Q: How Do I Become an Animal League Sponsor?
A: You can make your monthly pledge to support our special-needs animals in the way that is most convenient to you either by check, monthly bank debit, or credit card. You may set this up over the phone using our toll-free number 1-877-Be-My-Pal, on our website at www.animalleague.org/sponsor, or you can email us at email@example.com.
Q. As an Animal League Sponsor, why would I continue to sponsor a pet who has been adopted into a loving home?
A. Some of our precious and deserving special-needs pets are lucky enough to get adopted into their forever home, but they will always require life-long medical care. The Animal League will continue to provide for each of them for the rest of their lives. Although their place of residence has changed, the principles of the program remain the same. Our promise is to continue the funding and we hope you will remain committed to our life-saving program.
Have more questions? Please call our toll-free phone number at 1-877-BE-MY-PAL and speak with a Sponsor Relations Manager or email your questions to sponsor@AnimalLeague.org and we’ll be happy to respond. Thank you for your continued support!
It’s incredible how our Sponsor Pets recover from the most horrific accidents. And even though they’ve been through so much between surgeries and different treatments, they remain sweet, kind and gentle. They know the true meaning of receiving and giving love and compassion. Sponsor dog Sara was rescued from a burning house, she was left behind. Her owners didn’t come back to rescue or to even look for her. It wasn’t until the firemen came in to clear through the soot that they found this frighten dog. Sara was inflicted with burns across her body and was in need of immediate help. After being brought to Animal League America, Sara underwent several surgeries and intricate procedures along with being treated with pneumonia – due to the smoke inhalation. Sara recovered wonderfully and is still thriving 4 years later! She is in a loving home where she can run around in the yard and sprawl on the couch with her feline friend. She is gentle and loves to watch over her new human baby sister while she sleeps! SPONSOR SARA
After recently moving to Long Island City her dad found a few really nice dog parks that Sandy can run and play. She is always so popular with all of the dogs at the park. They all love to chase Sandy to the top of the rocks, her dad was able to capture the moment in a perfect photo – Sandy and friend looking out at the city buildings. Some may agree or disagree with Sandy’s love for the New York Yankees, she too is going to miss the captain, Derek Jeter. No matter what team you cheer for, you must admit she looks excellent in her bandana!
Karina is an adorable Shihtzu rescued from a puppy mill in late 2013. Karina sadly was forced to have litter after litter in terrible unhealthy conditions which resulted in her developing diabetes and becoming blind. But her life sure changed for the better when she was brought to safety. In just a few months she transformed into this loving, sweet dog. It’s truly amazing. She has a wonderful disposition and is so adorable and kind. Her foster mom, Maria, really gave her the attention she needed – and we can tell it’s working! Maria, her sponsors, and our veterinarian staff all make rescues like Karina’s possible. Click this video to see Karina (aka Daisy) in action!>>> Karina Visits North Shore with Buddy

O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou? What a handsome cat!
Meet Romeo. We rescued this sweet, adorable two-year-old domestic short hair cat from a home in upstate New York along with many other felines after their owner could no longer care for them. After being examined here at North Shore Animal League America, our veterinarians determined that Romeo’s recurring ear infections were the result of a cancerous growth, called Ceruminous Adenocarcinoma, inside one of his ears. The good news: The tumor had not spread elsewhere, and we gave Romeo the surgery he needed to completely remove the tumor. Now on the mend, Romeo is expected to make a full recovery with almost no hearing loss. We were so happy when he was adopted and taken him home to live with a wonderful woman who is just thrilled to have Romeo as her companion. Romeo runs around the home and enjoys sitting with his human mother to watch TV.
